The Last Post

This will most likely be the last post from this blog, as the new one is now launched.
Loyal Readers, you will find perheemme at CATIO TALES.

There's a Catio Tales page on facebook, and also @Catiotales on Twitter.

This blog will stay up but I think I'll disable comments (if I can), and no doubt I will link to it from the new blog. When Puna died, I just knew I could not continue with a blog in his name - it just did not feel right for me.  His voice and character were the essence of this blog.  So this is why there's a new one.  It's a work in progress of course, and I have no idea which cat will contribute what.

And this marks a new regime; Finland(N) is no longer a monarchy. It is a felocracy. Governed by felines (of course).  The throne has gone - probably because it was so heavily peemailed none of the gang wanted it.  Actually for a long time (since Stran left us) there has been no single 'Top Cat'. Aila and Jaava will always get first dibs the the food, but when it comes to being the boss in behaviour, Sampo and Ruska are the two who will attempt to be in charge but no clear leader emerges. King P wanted to be the boss but was too small to actually achieve it, and also too unpredictable in his hissy fits. Mirsku could easily be the boss, but is too chilled to be bothered. So as we get used to being a gang of 12 (G-12 as Spitty is now calling us), there's no clear leader and therefore a felocracy it is.

Thank you again, for all the support and I hope you will join us on the new blog. The photos and the stories will continue there as we enter a new Era, but our first post is a bit different.  I hope Punapippuri would approve.

Felocracy...DictCATorship, whatever. As long as Finland (N) continues to buckle under to the whims of felines, PPP's memory will be revered.


Codspeed, Punapippuri. We will always love you.

I think felocracies are the best! I'll be seeing you over at the new blog.

Thank you for keeping the old blog!

G-12 , now that's sounds like a lot of power! And with only one tax payer, it'll be a hard burden on Äiti.

Farwell, Punapippuri, we're happy you got to keep your throne!

Loved seeing the action going on there. I am sure that the king will be fondly remembered by so many with fondness.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I have added your new blog to my reader and look forward to seeing the future happenings in the Felocracy of Finland (N).
It is fitting that King P took his crown with him.
I "stole" your photo to put in my sidebar in his memory, and also on my Rainbow Bridge page. I hope that was okay, but if not I will take it down. It is one of my all time favourites.

It makes sense to shut this blog down in respect for your sweet boy.

The King will always live in our hearts. Hooray for the felocracy! See you on your new blog.

We are sad the change had to happen, but Hail the Felcrocy. We will update our reading list!

I am so sorry that we are late to leave our condolences but we will truly miss Kink P even though we rarely commented we truly loved him.
